Knowledge is of the past. Wisdom is of the future. Wisdom is a never-ending journey, it is life, the lessons we learn from life. In life we sometimes have difficult times, those times can be good because if we learn from them we will become stronger. That is where we learn. This is constantly giving shape to who we are. When we take the knowledge that we learn and apply it to give a new insight, we are then using wisdom.
Wisdom is life’s gift. It comes from the effort we expended to gain the insight. Realizing that wisdom is a gift, we must share that gift and pass it forward. “THE TRACKS WE LEAVE ON THE LAND WILL DISAPPEAR OVER TIME. THE TRACKS WE LEAVE IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF OTHERS WILL NEVER FADE.” Said Joseph Marshall III.
All life is in a circle, there is no beginning and there is no end. There is no one thing more important than another. By giving your knowledge to another, you are collaborating, teaching, or just giving with no expectation of something in return. That gift will return. “Be Like the bow and arrow. The reality of the bow and arrow is that one cannot be fulfilled without the other. Each gives purpose to the other.” Said Joseph Marshall III.
Even when one works alone, he does not accomplish alone. His knowledge came from another. No one works in a vacuum.
Remember, THE TRACKS WE LEAVE IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF OTHERS WILL NEVER FADE. Warren Buffet said, “you have lived a full life when the people you love, love you as well.” That, with THE TRACKS WE LEAVE IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF OTHERS is a full life. Not the material gains.
There are many people that HAVE LEFT TRACKS IN MY HEART AND MIND….I do hope that there are some of you that do feel the same.
